OPI Zom-body to Love (Spook-ettes mini)

I ordered Zom-body to Love after seeing pictures online, and was expecting a much darker color.  In person, this polish looked to be a dark mint in the bottle and a much lighter mint applied.  This is three coats, and as you can see, VNL is an issue.  Perhaps Zom-body is meant to be used with the black crackle it’s paired with in a full-size duo, or layered on top of another color. 

 

This glow-in-the-dark polish was one I’d been waiting for since seeing the promo pics, and I immediately put in on my nails to see how the glow effect would be once I turned out the lights (yes, I’m a dork, even though it was noon I went into an dark bathroom and shut the door).  The glow is awesome, especially if you “charge” your nails first by holding them to a bright light for a few seconds!  The only thing about this polish is that it has a weird texture.  My pic makes it look deceivingly glossy, which it’s not.  It’s kind of grainy, almost like a smoother version of the OPI cap itself.  Or certain Formica countertops.  Not necessarily a bad thing, just different.

Regardless of texture and coverage, the glow-in-the-dark feature makes this polish a keeper.  It’s available in the Spook-ettes set as one of four minis, or as a full-size  in the Pair ‘Em Scare ‘Em duo matched with a black crackle.
